September 2013

We are approved!  The bidding process has now started and we are hoping to get the renovations underway very soon.  Our projected completion date is still early January.  Stay tuned for some construction news.

Here are the renderings of the front and interior.  Stop by and watch the progress.  In the meantime - we are open for business by appointment - just give us a call!

The Southern's primary residence is above the office space on the second and third floors, which will also undergo renovations early next year.  "We love living and working in downtown Raleigh.  It is definitely an exciting place to be right now and we look forward to getting more neighbors living and working here." said Lisa Southern.

Jim Southern, Commercial Broker and Property Manager, added, "There are several new urban living projects underway, many new businesses and restaurants and other new commercial ventures in downtown, so we see huge growth in the coming years."

All plans have been submitted to the City of Raleigh and we are waiting for approvals to get started!  We can't wait to start demo and unveil our new look. Renovations will begin on the exterior of the building, keeping its historic charm but adding some modern updates.  The interior at ground level will be our Real Estate and Property Management offices.  The entire floor plan will be changed to make way for a modern and open feel.  We hope to have our Grand Opening Celebration January 2014!
